classic sports car cruise February 16

The first Sprite Club of South Australia classic sports car cruise for 2019 will be run on the evening of Saturday February 16th. As usual this is a low key informal short sharp and hopefully not too hot opportunity to display our  cars.

Gathering point this time will be the car park area next to the Adelaide historic ship in Port Adelaide. Entry off  Mclaren parade. Arrive at 6:30pm for a 7:00 pm departure. As usual we would like to be joined by any interested  sports car, clubman, etc drivers. We are not  fussy about what constitutes a classic sports car. Participants do not need to be members of car clubs. The run will be of approximately 1 hour duration. Sun is scheduled to dip into the gulf of St Vincent at 8:09 on this day. The route should minimize sunglare and be reasonably user friendly on older cooling systems.

One of the purposes of these cruising events is to promote interest in our cars a special feature of this event is that if possible drivers recruit a junior person to accompany them ie. children grand children nieces nephews etc. We will be asking the kids for their vote of favorite participating car with a  trophy going to the   car with the most votes. 

          Route maps will be available at the departure point.

          Depart the car park via Mclaren Pd.

          Left turn onto commercial rd following into Port rd towards the city.

          Veer right onto West Trc. Follow through to Goodwood rd. 

          Follow Goodwood road to Panorama.

          Turn left onto Springbank rd, cross over railway bridge.

         Turn right onto Belair rd follow road up to Windy Point car park where we should just be in time to catch the sunset.

          There will be a short presentation at Windy point. 

If the bureau predicts a day temperature above 38 deg or heavy rain the Cruise will be postponed. 

As would be expected everyone joining us take part entirely at their own risk and are responsible for the roadworthiness of their vehicle.
